What in the world?!, you may ask.
No, really, you may...
Go ahead.... Ask.
Well, since you asked... that, my friends, is (a good chunk of) a chapter from Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Chapter 33. Need I say more?
Okay. I need to say more.
I am a geek.... almost of uber geek status. You know those cute little family decals that people put on their minivan... Mine are daleks. Two big ones, 4 little ones and 2 K-9s. Don't know what that means? It's just as well...
I also have a decal on my car that says 9 3/4.
SO! When I saw this idea on pinterest, I had to have it. And I knew immediately which chapter I would use.
The Prince's Tale, of course.
Snape. Such a tragic hero.
My fail was that I grossly underestimated just how long that chapter was, and how much wall space I had. And how much my neck would kill me. And how I thought I could surely fit it all in above the shelf. And how writing with sharpie on a wall that has been textured takes twice as long.
So I had planned on stopping at the part where Snape says, "Always." But I couldn't even fit in that much. The last line I wrote was, "...and even with his poorly cut hair and his odd clothes, he struck an oddly impressive figure sprawled in front of her, brimful of confidence in his destiny..."
I loves him.
